Earlier this year, 15 year old school student Jack Whitney joined the design department for a week’s work experience.
Cyber-Duck are always looking to encourage the next generation of talent, and we love giving enthusiastic youngsters the chance to join us for a taste of what it’s like, which is why we were more than happy to provide Jack with such an opportunity.
Jack has a real passion for web design, and wanted to see what it was like to work at at a digital agency. Jack set about searching the internet for leading digital agencies in his local area, and before long he came across us. Jack, along with his teachers from Hertswood School, then contacted the ducks about working in the offices for a week to gain some knowledge and experience; and we were of course more than happy to provide him with this opportunity.
Having Jack in the office builds upon our great relationship with Hertswood School, as we have previously sponsored their school football team and provided them with new football kits. During his experience, Jack’s tasks included using his impressive creative skills to illustrate design elements, some of which are to be used for the new Cyber-Duck company video. We also gave him the chance to enhance his Photoshop skills, and showed him what goes in to designing an award winning website.
Just last week, Jack returned to Cyber-Duck HQ where he was awarded a certificate confirming his successful completion of a week’s work experience at Cyber-Duck. He was thrilled with his time here: ‘Having a week of work experience at Cyber-Duck really helped me discover and understand what a working environment felt like and what it would be like if I chose a career path in Web Design. I am, without doubt, very glad that I got a work experience place at a company like Cyber-Duck, where everyone was very kind and welcoming and made me feel like part of the team. If I was to go on work experience again, I would be delighted to have the opportunity to spend more time learning about the world of web design at Cyber-Duck.’
